The Case for the real Jesus
By Lee Strobel
Pre release copy.
Before I became a Christian (in 2005) I used to read all the books that agreed with what I then believed. You know the ones, the Richard Dawkins types. Then I thought, "Hmmm, I've read loads of evidence AGAINST religion, why don't I read some evidence for it. That should be funny!" I simply thought that an intelligent case for ANY religion was impossible. So I looked at all the major faiths, Islam, Buddhism, Hindu and even the Jehovah's witness', Judaism and then finally Christianity. I discovered that when one is able to take on board the evidence from both sides, then and only then can one reach a fair conclusion.

The Case for the real Jesus is a book that offers a fair and intelligent look at evidence both for and against the real Jesus. It quite easily dispels a lot of the myths surrounding Jesus, His life and His teachings. It even points out a few "error's" within the Bible and explains how and why they are there.

It looks into the claims of popular fiction authors, such as Dan Brown with his Da Vinci Code and quite easily lays those fictitious claims to rest.

This is a book I couldn't put down. I thrilled whilst reading every page, experiencing dozens of, what I call "A-Haaa!" moments.

Lee interviews several experts on the subjects raised within the book, he asks the difficult questions that I used to throw at Christians. He doesn't let these experts off easily, and they make their case wonderfully.

This book will help any Christian solidify their faith, and let non-Christians read the "True" evidence about Christ.

Out of all the Christian apologetics's I have read, Lee Strobel is simply one of the best. As a committed Christian the recent years have been ones of having to repeatedly answer objection's from my Atheistic friends and attacks by Muslim's attempting to persuade me that Jesus was never crucified.
Lee Strobel's investigative approach to unearthing the real Jesus will provide any Christian worth his salt with enough ammunition to answer all of these questions, by pursuing an evidence-based approach Strobel clearly demonstrates the reliability of the Gospel's, the actuality of the Resurrection and therefore the reliability of the Hebrew scriptures.
The Holy Spirit truly walks with this man.

"So when the centurion and those with him, who were guarding Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they feared greatly, saying, 'Truly this was the Son of God!'" -- Matthew 27:54 (NKJV)

I developed an interest in reading this book after hearing Lee Strobel preach at Calvary Chapel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, a few weeks ago. He presented a lot of background information about Jesus that was new to me, and I decided I wanted to learn more.

I believe that you will gain the most benefit from The Case for the Real Jesus if you first read Lee Strobel's earlier book, The Case for Christ. The facts and arguments in The Case for the Real Jesus are often connected to material in The Case for Christ.

In the interest of helping you figure out if this is a book you want to read, I suggest you begin by taking a look at pages 266-267 where the key issues addressed in the book are summarized.

The book considers these challenges that have been frequently raised in the public press during recent years:

1. "Scholars are uncovering a radically different Jesus in ancient documents just as credible as the four Gospels."

2. "The Bible's portrait of Jesus cannot be trusted because the church tampered with the text."

3. "New explanations have refuted Jesus' resurrection."

4. "Christianity's beliefs about Jesus were copied from pagan religions."

5. "Jesus was an imposter who failed to fulfill the Messianic prophecies."

6. "People should be free to pick and choose what to believe about Jesus.

Format: Paperback
Raised Christian and having since lapsed into an easy agnosticisim, I expected this book to be full of circular reasoning and using faith/scriptural writings alone to confirm Jesus' identity. Well, what I got instead was a cool headed reply to the usual attacks on Christianity's 'version' of Jesus, such as the Gospels were written long after his death and not by eye witnesses. By the end I was left shaken out of my comfortable relitavism and had the nasty feeling that these Christians might actually be right! Only section that wasn't completely convincing was where Strobel and the expert he interviews try to prove that Jesus fulfilled the Jewish Messianic prophecies. However, on the biggie of the ressurection, it doesn't half make a good case. Much better than the sneering hard-core atheists do against. Think I might have to get myself to church...
